After several fairly flat months, New Jersey online gambling revenue has begun to surge once again.
NJ gambling sites combined to bring in $93.5 million for the month of October, setting a new record. Prior to this, total online revenue for the state had hovered between $85 million and $88 million since May. Sports betting was also on the rise, up nearly 30% with mobile and retail channels combined.
Retail casino gaming moved in the opposite direction, and the two phenomena may be related. As cases of COVID-19 in the Garden State continue to soar, players who enjoy both live and online gambling may be leaning more towards the latter.
Total combined gaming revenue for the state was $338 million, a month-on-month increase of nearly 5%.
Data comes from the latest report published by the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement.
